A living relationship with Jesus is what we focus on at 2nd Wave Ministries. Because of what Jesus did on the cross, it is possible for each one of us to come to our Creator and have a personal relationship with Him. That is our created purpose and it is the only way we can live the abundant life here on earth and the eternal life with the Lord in heaven.
1) God the Father
We believe in the One true God, holy, loving and glorious, who exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and in His sovereignty and grace as seen in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgment.
2) God the Son: Jesus
We believe that Jesus is both fully God and fully human, born of the virgin Mary; His sinless life, His substitutionary atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His victorious reign and future return. He is the only mediator, and His sacrificial death is the only and all-sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin and from its eternal consequences. By the grace of God alone through faith in Jesus sinners are justified and receive the gift of eternal life.
3) God the Holy Spirit
We believe in the convicting, regenerating, indwelling, illuminating, empowering, equipping and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the divine inspiration of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and their consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of belief and behavior.
3) Human dignity
We believe in the dignity and equality of all people, created in God’s image to live in love and holiness.
4) Human condition
We believe in the universal guilt and hopelessness of all people because of sin, making them subject to God’s wrath and condemnation. However, because of Jesus' work upon the cross, people can, through faith in Jesus, be restored and have fellowship with Almighty God.
7) The Church
We beleive that we are a part of the universal Church of which Jesus is the Head. The universal Church is expressed in local congregations of believers who are committed to the proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel throughout the world. We believe in the priesthood of all believers and the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
8) Future Hope
We believe in the personal, visible and victorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory to establish fully His universal reign. We believe in the final judgment of all people with justice, bringing those who have rejected Jesus to eternal punishment and believers in Jesus to eternal life.
